Hip Hop is the primary influence in the lives of many teenage minorities. By using that which they love to teach them how to love themselves we can teach them how to better themselves and thus, better the world around them”.

Reason Above Superstition Ignorance and Illusion (RASII) is a new mentoring program created by the Society of Hamitic Science for the development of young minorities. RASII uses an original approach, combining hip-hop and Hamitic science to teach character building to underprivileged youth. RASII offers mentoring and lectures that use hip hop as a working tool to connect with the youth on a deeper level.
“As elders of hip-hop, we need to use the knowledge we possess to influence the generations that have come after us,” says founder, Tut Ankh Tun Anu, “Many of the lyrics found in hip-hop embody Hamitic principles.”
With a dismal high school graduation rate, an alarming number of drug users, and what seems to be a general lack of concern, many young minorities are stumbling along without purpose. RASII offers these disenfranchised youth a chance to use what they know, hip-hop, to explore philosophies that will help empower them. The program is comprised of five guiding principles that are taught through lectures which use hip-hop artists and lyrics as their basis.
“Hip Hop is the living image of Hamitic philosophy, for nowhere on earth can you find more creativity, more self-expression or more focus on self-development than in hip-hop culture,” Anu says, “Through the RASII program we will mentor and educate minority youth by raising to the surface the intelligence within hip-hop music and culture. Hip Hop is the primary influence in the lives of many teenage minorities. By using that which they love to teach them how to love themselves we can teach them how to better themselves and thus, better the world around them.”
